this the crusader enemy is significant. that's the same kind of technology that are used by groups like al qaeda, which is ironic considering that it is gadhafi that says that he is fighting against al qaeda. all day on libyan state television, we've been listening to rhetoric against the west, against the united states, against israel, how that this is a grand conspiracy organized by the united states and israel, that this is a new crusade and that is the language they are using to describe what they call the latest attack on a civilian area. >> pentagon is making it clear that the french are part of the coalition but they're not the attacks that the french made on that he has armored vehicles earlier today was not part of operation "odyssey dawn." it began when the american ships fired the targets . general mccaffrey, how far does this go in crippling gadhafi's ability to inflict violence against his people and against these armed rebels? >> almost no impact at all. i think it does have a psychological impact on the leadership, which i would hope might contribute to some of his support startin
